First One Person Exhibition in New York for Sangram Majumdar at Gallery Schlesinger

NEW YORK, NY.- Steven Harvey Fine Art Projects presents the first one person exhibition in New York City of paintings by Sangram Majumdar at Gallery Schlesinger. Majumdar is a young painterly realist whose work expands the perimeters of contemporary representation. Sangram Majumdar’s paintings describe ostensibly traditional subject matter- still life, landscape and figure. Yet Majumdar’s paintings have grown progressively more radical in the way they try to encapsulate human perception. These paintings are densely layered with a range of marks, implicit narratives, and visual possibilities. In her essay for the exhibition catalog Jennifer Samet observes that “Sangram Majumdar’s paintings reminds us of the potential and the achievement of transfixing simultaneity within a single visual image. He seems to slice open his worlds, cutting into them almost mercilessly to present an image rich with evocation.“ She
